This simple preschool craft needs only two supplies: felt and magnets. If you prefer, or if it's easier for the kids to cut, you can use card stock instead of the felt. To make this project go faster, especially if it's in a group or classroom setting, grown ups can cut the flowers out ahead of time.
I freehanded the flowers for this project, but you can use the flower shaped template from this craft if you like.

Felt Button Flower Magnets
If you child prefers, he/she can cut out circle shapes instead of flower shapes. They are easier and still look like pretty flowers in a field! These are great for holding up your child’s art projects or for displaying on the classroom file cabinets. A fun and colorful idea any time of year, not just for spring or summer. After all, we love flowers all year long!
You will need:
- Felt or card stock
- Felt glue or hot glue gun
Adult supervision is recommended if using a hot glue gun.
- Cut flowers from felt or card stock.
- Glue a button to the center of the flower.
- Glue a magnet to the back of the flower.
- Let everything dry before hanging on the fridge!
Another preschool craft that lots of fun is this shaving cream painting activity! Be sure to have kids wear smocks and line the table with newspapers before you get started.
Hope you have fun!
